The Chaos Computer Club (CCC) is Europe's largest hacker association, founded in 1981 by German hackers.
Our head office is located at the residence of CCC Hamburg.
Many of our regional subsidiaries run their own hackerspaces, which we call Erfa-Kreise (experience sharing circles).
These regional subsidiaries are mostly independent and cooperate in a lively community which meets on CCC-organized events.
We hold some of the largest hacker conferences in the world, which are almost entirely volunteer-run.
Recordings from these conferences are available through media.ccc.de, our independent video distribution service.
Teams such as our C3VOC video crew provide professional support to many open-source events in Germany and neighboring countries.
